CivFanatics have members from all around the world with the majority coming from 'Western' nations, however there does seem to be very few from Japan.

Which I find strange given that Japan is a large modern, affluent and technologically advanced society that (from my experience) has many people who can speak some English.

So where are they?

Edit:

Before some smart a*se answers, "still in Japan"! I'll rephrase the question why aren't there more Japanese posting at CivFanatics?

Mr Bond was teaching 15yr old girls from memory. I wonder whether he used Civ2 as a teaching aid?

Mr Bond might have an explanation for the relative scarcity of Japanese posters here.

It is a very comprehensive Civ3 site. :) They even have an Info Digest comparable to our Info Center.

I can't read Japanese but I had a look anyway, thanks TF. I agree it does look comprehensive, but it still doesn't explain why we seem to have very few posters from Japan.

After all non-English-speakers such as the Swedes, Dutch and Spanish have a significant presence in these forums despite the fact that Civ sites exist in their languages (ok, I'm guessing about Swedes and Dutch but I know the Spanish have a site attached to Poly).

Hmmm, I wonder whether any Japanese lurkers would care to comment? :)

Odd how we seem to get members in either large numbers or small trickles most of the time. (Still haven't found a Palestine Civ-fanatic!)
